    After spending the last ten minutes trying every possible key combination this doesn't seem to be an option. What I did dicover though is if your running
    .247 and are in the sms/mms folder, a quick double tap of the menu key and you are ready to text. Also for those not aware pressing R on a text that somebody sent will set up a reply.
    Get QSMS (link available on my site).

    After install, the Q button auto opens composing a sms, which is awesome (you have to disable dialing from the home screen).

    in the "messages" folder if you press shift + scroll up or down it highlights more than one text/email for easier filing/saving/deleting!

    I just figured this one out... Maybe it's always been there, maybe not. But I'm running .247. If you HOLD down Q (as opposed to pushing q for qsms) you can switch between Vibrate and Normal Profile... Swear I never knew this, so sorry if this was obvious already known info...

    Yeah that feature was there before. Definitely a handy shortcut. Also it switches between the last two used profiles, not so much Normal and Vibrate only.

    Either way... Sweet! I figure those are the only two I've ever used, so it works for me...

    If you are viewing a mail or msg,just by pressing "space" scrolls the msg down,

    Pressing Left shift+space scrolls the msg UP!

    We can avoid using 'trackball' for scrolling!

    Thanks for all other useful tips!
    This is a Gr8 thread!

    Dry Your Device with Silica Gel: If you've dropped your BlackBerry in water, dry it out with silica-gel packets, which often come in shoeboxes. This also works with silica cat litter, which is generally labeled as crystal.

    Select Special Characters: Press and hold a letter key, then move the thumb wheel up or down to get the appropriate character,

    Stop a Page from Loading. Press the Escape button to keep Web pages from loading.

    Pushing the Mute button while your phone rings,it'll make Ôt silent. On Bold. On others,I hear it'll make it silent for only 3 seconds. That of you can reject the call from the "end" button. I just want it to shut-up

    ^ Toggling the volume either up or down once also does the same.

    Hold Left Alt + Shift down and press H

    You'll see phone information, pin, imei, etc. You also see your battery as a percent in that screen.

    Press Left Alt + Left Shift and you switch to only numbers. You don't need to keep hitting alt to press them.
    Press Left Alt + Right Shift and IT SWITCHES TO ALL CAPS. YOU GET THE IDEA NOW. LoL

    if you are using more than one language as input language on your phone. i.e. you use English and German as example, press the left ALT and the Enter and you will get a pop up selection menu to change your typing language

    Gotta do it with a theme.
    What the **** are you talking about. Did you make that up out of thin air. NOTHING to do with themes, if you don't know what the **** you are talking about don't reply.

    Hold Alt and press N M L L : will change your signal bars with percentage

    papped is quite knowledgeable, to be honest. He's also always trying to help people out; so he doesn't deserve your misplaced anger.

    (You should have noticed the question was how to change the battery meter to percentage display.)
